How to Naturally Clean Your Home to Protect From the COVID-19 Virus
With the recent emergence of COVID-19, and the subsequent classification of the virus as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, taking preventative measures to protect
you and your family are more important than ever.
An increasing number of individuals are seeking out safe, effective and natural ways to keep the virus out of their homes and their families safe from infection. Now, more than ever before, people are realizing that natural home cleaning is the safest and most effective way to keep their homes clean and COVID-19-free.
With stores are running out of hand sanitizers, harsh chemical cleaners/disinfectants, and chlorine wipes, people are searching for easy, alternative ways of green cleaning. When all else fails, remember: a little bit of simple hand soap will go a long way in helping to combat the spread of this virus.
Natural Home Cleaning
While it isn’t possible to disinfect every single surface of your home, it helps to be vigilant with your hand washing. Other than that, you can accomplish a lot with green cleaning methods. If you want to try natural home cleaning, some of the best recommendations you can use to naturally clean and disinfect include:
• A vacuum with a HEPA filter to clean the air and remove debris from the floor
• A washable, reusable mop
• A solution of 10 cups of water to 1 cup of white vinegar and a splash of lemon as both a
mopping and general cleaning solution
• Baking soda to neutralizes odors, eliminate dampness, and eliminate stains
• White vinegar to deodorize and clean
Cleaning products that fail to have a complete list of their ingredients or that have the word “fragrance” on the label may contain harmful chemicals that can take their toll on your health over an extended period of time.
Green Cleaning: The Basics of Naturally Cleaning Your Home
Your basic natural cleaning toolbox should be stocked with white vinegar, baking soda, borax, citrus fruit, empty spray bottles, hydrogen peroxide, cornstarch, castile soap, tea tree oil an other essential oils, microfiber cloths or cotton T-shirts, reusable mops, and a vacuum with a HEPA filter.
White vinegar is a wonderful cleaner. Its acidic composition allows you to easily remove gummy, grimy buildup, rust, and hard water stains. Lemon juice can also be used as a substitute for white vinegar.
Baking Soda absorbs odors in the air. It is great when used in litter boxes, garbage cans, and diaper pails. A simple sprinkling of baking soda onto a damp cloth will go a long way to gently clean counters, sinks, ovens, stoves, and tubs.
Borax is a natural bleach that is similar to baking soda. Use it to remove stains from laundry and common household surfaces. Be sure to keep it away from children and pets as well as away from your skin, eyes, and nose as it could be irritating.
When mixing your own cleaners, use hot water and put the mixture into clearly labeled spray bottles. Keep in mind that freshly made cleaners made with hot water work best. While all of these natural ingredients will clean, not all will disinfect. Some of the best natural sanitizers are straight heated vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. When you leave these to sit on surfaces for one minute, germs like salmonella and E. coli, and viruses like COVID-19 don’t stand a chance.
Finally, another type of sanitizer comes in the mixture of 1 cup vinegar, 1 cup club soda, and 2 drops of tea tree oil. When sprayed onto surfaces and wiped clean, it will properly disinfect and kill germs and viruses.
